Weruva Pumpkin Patch Up! - A Review (And Happy Halloween!)

Hello everyone! This is Lexy checking in with another fab review.  Before I get to the review I have a couple of things I'd like to say. 

First of all, I do apologize for our absence.  It has been a busy month for Mother and unfortunately when she had to make a choice between helping us blog and completing other responsibilities, blogging had to take a back seat for several weeks.  We hope to be back to a regular schedule soon. (We do miss meowing with everyone.) 

Second, Happy Halloween! We had a few different ideas for Halloween posts, but we'll save them for next year.  In the meantime, here is a photo of Lola from a Halloween past. (She's a cute little witch, if I do say so myself!) 

And now, onto the review! Chewy had a great list to choose from this month. I chose the Weruva Pumpkin Patch Up! supplement pouches.   

I had two reasons for my choice: I'm prone to hair balls, and Lola... well... she gets backed up. Pumpkin is great for both of these conditions.  

The fiber in pumpkin can greatly reduce hairballs. Take my word for it, hairballs are not fun.  And neither is the tummy ache that comes with it.  (Although it is amusing to watch humans do their best to avoid them, only to end up stepping in them barefoot.  But I digress - that's another post topic.) 

In Lola's case, pumpkin can keep everything in her digestive tract moving right along. And, interestingly enough, it can also help with diarrhea. Pumpkin is also beneficial for Lola because it adds moisture to her diet since she only eats about two teaspoons of wet food a day.  

Weruva Pumpkin Patch Up! comes in convenient pouches. (BTW, dogs can eat it, too.)  You can mix it in your cat's food. I loved it! 

And if your cat is like Lola and doesn't care for it mixed in their food, you can give it to them as a snack.  

Look! Lola ate it!  

Weruva Pumpkin Patch Up! is known as the "Happy Belly Maker".  Chewy.com lists the benefits as: 

  • Supports stool quality
  • Soluble and insoluble fibers
  • Supports healthy gut motility
  • Pureed for easy mixing
  • Only two ingredients
  • BPA and gluten-free
I definitely recommend Weruva Pumpkin Patch Up! You can purchase the pouches from Chewy.com where you always get free 1 - 2 day shipping on orders of $49 and more.  There is also an autoship feature as well! A 12-count box is regularly $8.28, but it is currently on sale for $7.44. 

Disclosure: As part of the Chewy blogger program we received a free 12-count box of Weruva Pumpkin Patch Up! in exchange for our honest review, but this did not influence our opinions at all. Lola The Rescued Cat only shares information on products we think will be h
elpful to our readers.Chewy is not responsible for the content of this post.

Mother's Little Helper

Hmmm... it seems Mother tried to clean my fur off of her uniform after I napped on it and worked so hard to get just the right amount of hairs on it so she wouldn't miss me when she goes to work. It seems she still has some work to do...

Mother! You missed a spot! 

What would she do without me? Do you kitties decorate you human's clothes with your fur?

Make Your Bed Day? No Thank You!

Hello and Happy Friday!  September 11 was National Make Your Bed Day, but since September 11 is a day of remembrance we Mommy decided to wait to post about it on a different day.  I have to be honest – this is not a day that Lexy and I like.  We really don’t like it when Mommy makes the bed.  (Well, it’s fun playing with the sheets and getting in the way, but after that – bleh!) We like sleeping in a messy, lumpy bed.
That's OK, Mommy.  We can skip posting about this day.  We don't mind. 
Even though I protested, Mommy still insisted that I move so she could make the bed.  
Is this the Twilight Zone?

World Farm Animals Day

Hello everyone, this is Lexy checking in. Today I'm going to tell you about World Farm Animals Day.  

This day was created in memory of Ghandi who believed in treating all living beings with respect.  World Farm Animals Day was founded to bring attention the poor conditions suffered by some farm animals, and promote awareness in the hope something may be done to improve their lives. It makes sense that this day is observed during Vegetarian Month! 

Mother visited a farm animal sanctuary, Woodstock Farm Sanctuary, in upstate New York.  She was actually there twice.  Once she attended their Thanksliving Celebration  and another time she and Will took a drive on a Saturday to visit.  They both loved it!

WFS was founded in 2004 by Jenny Brown and Doug Abel with a group of rescued chickens from a factory farm, and a rooster who had been dumped in a NYC schoolyard. 

Today WFS regularly takes in farm animals that are victims of cruelty and neglect. Most of these animals are rescued during investigations of farms, stockyards, auctions, and slaughterhouses; others arrive from humane societies and SPCA cruelty cases.

This cow's name is Elvis!

Believe it or not, a large number of the animals come from right here in the streets of New York City. For the first time in their lives, these animals that have only known fear, isolation and pain now enjoy warm and clean barns, nourishing food, veterinary care and love.

In 2015 the sanctuary moved from Woodstock, NY (yes, THAT Woodstock) to a larger farm in High Falls, NY.  Mother can't wait to visit the new place! 

WFS's philosophy is kindness and respect to animals is our duty and that all the creatures that share this earth are here with us and not for us. Like our faithful dogs and lap-sitting cats, farm animals are feeling individuals who deserve to be treated with compassion and to live free from fear and suffering. That's a philosophy we love. 

Here are a few more photos Mother took during her visits.  We hope you enjoy them! And don't forget to hug a farm animal today!
Of course Mother and Will found the resident cat!
